Eat Me, Drink Me
In Eat Me, Drink Me, Jennifer Angus’s whimsical installation inspires a sense of unabashed wonder. Using insects and other wildlife in unexpected and playful ways, she invites viewers to return to a state of childlike curiosity and discovery while posing pressing questions about our relationship with the natural world.

Her work seeks to provoke a series of increasingly urgent questions about our perceptions and what we value and protect: Are we big or small? Do individuals make a difference? What are the stories we need to tell, and those we need to change?
